That's interesting. I kind of had an interest in the drums myself before I got to sixth grade beginning band and was told that they weren't going to teach drums in that class. I, as you did, eventually ended up playing baritone until high school when I was convinced to switch to tuba because we didn't have one. I ended up making the All-State Band the next year and knew that tuba was going to be my instrument. By the way, how did you find these "tuba related" scholarships (or did they find you)? I know it's 20 years later, but I haven't had much luck finding any music related scholarships.
